Title: Design and construction of the DEAP-3600 dark matter detector

Abstract

The Dark matter Experiment using Argon Pulse-shape discrimination (DEAP) has been designed for a direct detection search for particle dark matter using a single-phase liquid argon target. The projected cross section sensitivity for DEAP-3600 to the spin-independent scattering of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) on nucleons is 10–46cm2 for a 100 GeV/c2 WIMP mass with a fiducial exposure of 3 tonne-years. In conclusion, this paper describes the physical properties and construction of the DEAP-3600 detector.
